I took advantage of a cheap airfare and took a couple of days off to hang out in the Bay Area.
As luck would have it, my airfare coincided with Mayday, or Beltane as it's called in some circles.
The Wheel of the Year has two opposites: Beltane, the beginning of summer, and Samhain, or All Hallow's Eve, the beginning of winter.
Beltane/Mayday is a day filled with eager greetings to warm weather, flowering trees, and young love.
The Berkeley Morris dance up the sun every May 1 at Inspiration Point in Tilden Park. This year, I got to attend – and it's been a long time since I've enjoyed the Berkeley Morris.
